Amazing Spider-Man 3 pushed to 2018, Sinister Six dated

After The Amazing Spider-Man 2's dubious quality (although I was a fan!) and tepid box office performance, it seems Sony's taking a step back with this franchise. In a classic case of "counting chickens before they hatch," So...

FlixList: Ten Crimes I'd Commit During a Real Purge

With The Purge: Anarchy in theaters and another #CrimeDay in the history books, I've been thinking about crime for a bit now. In the series, everyone and their mothers are so focused on committing violent crimes they don't se...

First trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey

So, here we are. Although Fifty Shades of Grey will never be the movie you want (but if you wanted straight porn, it's out there already), I can promise this trailer at least captures the tone of your favorite romance/pornog...

Review: Kill Team

The war in Afghanistan is the longest military conflict in which the United States has been involved. The operation is nowhere near as successful as hoped, which is part of the reality of fighting a war in Afghanistan, a less...

UPDATE: We've gotten more images! Most importantly, we have our first look at Slappy the Puppet, one of the standouts from the Goosebumps universe. Other than that, I have no idea what the other monsters are although one look...

Full trailer for Dear White People is still pretty funny

The first teaser (and it's title) for Dear White People managed to catch our attention here at Flixist due to its biting jokes and intelligent race commentary. It looks like that trend continues with this full trailer. With ...

New clip from Honeymoon is intriguing (and not spoiler-y)

Although I never reviewed it, Honeymoon was the best film I saw at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival. It's a cabin in the woods sort of film with some nice creep factor and incredible chemistry between the two main charact...

Pixels, a full fledged film adapted from Patrick Jean's short film of the same name, is about a group of folks who are asked to fight an invasion of videogame characters when they mistake arcade machines as an act of war. Dir...

Full Japanese trailer for Ghibli's When Marnie Was There

Studio Ghibli's films are so damn pretty, I don't even need to understand what anyone is saying. That's why this Japanese trailer for their latest film, When Marnie Was There, is perfect for me. In much better quality than t...

Listen to the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles rap "Shell Shocked"

Remember way back when Vanilla Ice did the the theme for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze? Regardless of your opinions of "Ninja Rap's" quality, you have to admit it was catchy. And you know what? This...

First teaser for Nightcrawler, starring Jake Gyllenhaal

Whoa, in such a short span of time, this teeny teaser has put Nightcrawler on my watch list. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a guy who can't land a job, so he resorts to "nightcrawling" where he investigates crime scenes in...

Character posters for The Expendables 3 get colorful

While the trailers for The Expendables 3 refuse to drop the Fast & Furious-style title font, at least it's trying something different with the rest of its marketing. In a lighthearted move to remind us the film will be ra...

First trailer for Predestination, starring Ethan Hawke

The Spierig brothers' Predestination was a complete surprise when I saw it during SXSW. With a nice twist on science fiction, the lead up to the finale was entertaining. Based on Robert A. Heinlein's "All You Zombies," Prede...

Star Wars: Episode VII has an X-Wing in it

There's not much to say about this. As part of the promotion for the UNICEF "Force for Change" campaign, J.J Abrams recorded a video in front of an X-Wing (technically a Headhunter, but every other site says "X-Wing" and I want to be popular). Sooooo enjoy. You can donate with Omaze to enter the contest for an advanced screening, too.  [via Omaze]

The Ring 3 gets director, reminds us it exists

Do you folks remember The Ring? It was a horror movie in which watching a VHS tape leads to your death in seven days when a ghost girl comes out of a TV to eat donuts or something. It was all the rage for about two weeks, the...

Boyhood is supposed to be really good. Really, really good. I haven't seen it myself but the film's critical reception has been overwhelmingly positive. I have to give Linklater props for filming the movie in such a unique wa...

See Guardians of the Galaxy early and free

Guardians of the Galaxy is probably my most anticipated Marvel movie in ever. It looks like it's finally shaking up the stale franchises for good. And if not, at least it's got a great cast at the center. So for some lucky fo...
